Reader Revamp: Kitchen Transformation

Thank you to those who sent in your Before and Afters. Keep them coming!!! I hope I get more from you guys, I enjoy them so much. If you haven't sent your projects in yet, make sure you email them to me.  You do not have to have a blog in order to be featured. I just want to see all the creativeness out there.


Our first Reader Revamp is by Angie over at All My Treasures. Angie is a loyal follower of Rocky Bella, and I always enjoy reading her great comments. Thanks for sending your terrific Before & After my way Angie!

Here is what Angie wrote to me...

"The house was built in the 20's. The owner had updated most of the home but had left the kitchen as is. The funniest part is he was a single gay man living with a duck motif in his kitchen. This didn't suit him at all. Cracked me up!"
"I did this kitchen for a friend about 4 years ago and the total cost for transformation was $10,000.00.
That was for cabinets, granite counters, plumbing, lighting, drywall, painting AND a couple new appliances."

BEFORE

AFTER
This is the view from the dinning room into the kitchen. The contractors removed a total of 8 inches. 6 in one direction and 2 in the other and then rounded out the opening.

AFTER
There were once two pantries in the laundry room behind the fridge wall, but who needs two pantries? One was knocked out so the fridge could be recessed a bit.  The extra couple of inches along with the wider entrance into the kitchen and getting rid of the ceiling fan makes it feel 300 square feet larger.

BEFORE

AFTER
The once dead space is now several extra cabinets and makes his once lonely wine fridge look like a built in. It gave him an extra 6 feet of counter space and added a small flat screen to watch cooking shows on.

 

BEFORE
 When you squeezed through the door you weren't sure if the fridge was going to attack you or if you were going to get decapitated by the low hanging ceiling fan!


 AFTER

 Do you have a Before & After you would like to share? It doesn't have to be an entire kitchen like this. I want to see all that you guys are up to! Email me your photos and description of what you have done.
